I am looking for a way to display other data in a MaskedTextBox than the data it is bound to (DataTable).
More specifically: The DataTable contains a DateTime column (DateOfBirth). Whenever the year is 1900, I would like to display it as empty in the MaskedTextBox while keeping it in the underlying DataTable, because I use 1900 for "unknown".
Example: Value in the DataTable: 1900-10-09 --[DataBinding]--> MaskedTextBox __-10-09
Currently, I am using the CurrentItemChanged-Event of the BindingSource to modify the Text-property of the MaskedTextBox. That works nicely as long as I simply browse through the DataTable. However, as soon as I start editing the MaskedTextBox, 1900 is back.
It would be nicer if I could somehow intercept the value that is passed from the DataRow to the MaskedTextBox, instead of replacing it afterwards.
Or maybe there is a way to get the MaskedTextBox to display 1900 as empty?
I have already asked the same question at stackoverflow, but so far, nobody new an answer - at least not for Windows Forms: stackoverflow
So, if somebody knows an answer here, it will be greatly appreciated!
Thank you very much and best regards
